Hello… it’s me…
Yeah. That’s right, I’m calling in after seeing Liverpool lose 3-0 to Watford.
I don’t think it says much about Klopp as a manager. After all, he’s coming in and taking on a pretty average squad. What it does tell you is that his job is going to be really, really tough.
I think the idea that he’d come in and change the world was a bad one.
I really like Klopp, but up against the cash of the Premier League, the talent of every club and the new influx of world class managers… I really think it’s pipe dreams that he’ll return them to the top.
But hey, if Leicester can be 5 points clear at Christmas, then why can’t Liverpool come back into the fold?
… and what about Leicester? Does someone want to tell them the banter has gone too far? It’s getting beyond a joke. They are literally a winning machine. How long can they go on? Why has no one cracked their formula yet?
It’ll come. Then there will be tears… hopefully.
In other more hilarious news, Manchester United lost in another dismal showing against Norwich. I watched part of the game and felt the players had caught whiff of the Chelsea players silent protest against Mourinho and want some of that sweet ‘get him sacked’ action.
I mean, I feel pretty smug right now. I called LVG a fraud from the start… now I think it’s coming to fruition.
You can’t be a bastard and get away with it these days. People will listen to your bullshit for a little bit, but after a while, it gets boring and then people switch off.
I guess it’s like work place management. Back in the day, being a bastard manager worked… top down rollickings were fine. Nowadays, the millenial generation and below won’t tolerate it. They’re all entitled and stuff… they expect to be treated as equals… especially if they’re millionaires. LVG doesn’t get this. I think Mourinho has struggled with player power in the last year. Both are cut from the same nasty cloth and both are suffering.
Imagine if United… a club suffering from durgy football and a manager who can’t communicate with his star players… replace their manager with a guy who plays durgy football and was thrown out of his last club because of sour relations with his senior players.
I mean, we are talking Ed Woodward, the most cowboy football club leader since Peter ‘give him 50% more for no reason’ Risdale.
Bad news on the WELBZ front. He’s no nearer a return. He’s fallen into the Arsenal medical room abyss… we knew this would happen. I think we should just suck it up and look forward to him returning in 2017. Really sad for lad… such a great smile and a physique that had so much potential.
Wenger just threw Sterling on the nearly bonfire…
“We watched him but you miss obvious players. The history of every club is full of top players that you missed. At the time Liverpool were quicker.”
Ahh man. I regret not signing him in the summer. What a player. So fast. So skillful and so young.
Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for you today, have a great day and I’ll drop a City preview tonight so it’s there for you in the morning.
BIG LOVE x
